The Raffles Hotel in Singapore is a legendary institution. The Singapore Sling (cocktail) was invented here, and the hotel's bar, the Long Bar, gladly peddles this sugary, syrupy gin cocktail to suspecting and unsuspecting tourists. All that said, you do have to try it as having a Singapore Sling at the Raffles Long Bar is a bit of a must-do while in the area.
My hotel overlooks the raffles, from which I took this photo this morning. I'm off to Tokyo tomorrow and will be back in San Francisco before I left (thanks to the International Date Line).
